Tom Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl champion and perhaps one of the best American football players of all time, is an outspoken supporter of cryptocurrency.
In a recent interview, the highest-paid NFL player in history expressed his support for the crypto ecosystem, saying that he would love it if digital assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Solana could be included in his salary.
Speaking with Jim Gray on Sirius XM’s “Let’s Go Sirius XM,” the great American football player and staunch proponent of cryptocurrency disclosed his desire to get a portion of his NFL salary in cryptocurrencies.
“I’d love to get paid in some Bitcoin or Ethereum or Solana tokens. I think it’s an amazing thing that’s happening in the world with the way the world is becoming more digital.”
Digital assets’ underlying technology, according to the quarterback, is the future since it allows for quick and transparent transactions. He also projected that more athletes would ask for cryptocurrency payments in the near future:
“The digital age is upon us. I don’t think we’re ever going back. We’re using the technology and information to track things much better. And I definitely see a world where players are going to be paid in cryptocurrencies in the future.”
Tom Brady is not just a crypto supporter he is a blockchain aficionado. In April, he issued his own collection of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on Autograph. He hoped that by introducing the initiative, he would be able to bring together well-known figures from many industries, such as sports, fashion, pop culture, and entertainment, to create personal, one-of-a-kind digital artworks.
